Greek Mountain Tea also known as Ironwort or Shepherd’s Tea is a sweet-smelling herb, grown in a region south of Thessaloniki, Greece. Harvested by hand, the 30cm plants are gathered together and cut approximately 3cm from the ground using a scythe.
Once the sorted tea has been bundled, it is hung in special drying sheds. This process of shade-drying produces a high-quality herbal infusion.
- Spicy and aromatic, Greek Mountain Tea is traditionally used to aid digestion, strengthen the immune system and suppress the common cold.

Timely and freshBy: Jason on 10 September 2022We've bought mountain tea from a few online suppliers before now. The product doesn't vary, but the Tea Leaves team do two things better - their packaging is a lot more user-friendly, and since they're Australian-based, the tea gets here a lot faster. Highly recommended.
